Profibus PA to Modbus TCP Gateway for Process Control and Plant Asset Management

Integrate Profibus PA into EcoStruxure™ with Modbus TCP

Overview

Connect Profibus PA to EcoStruxure™ for MMM and WWW applications

The control, monitoring and optimization of continuous production processes and facilities require an integrated automation technology. In particular Profibus PA offers at present the possibility for comprehensive monitoring and Plant Asset Management. This is due to the pure digital communication at a comparably high baud rate all the way down to field level inclusive hazardous areas and due to the comprehensive availability of suitable automation components.

Combined with Schneider's M580 solutions, mbGate PA offers the possibility to expand legacy plants in the process industry with modern and highly functional segments.

Enabling the use of digital technology leads to increased data accuracy and enhanced system reliability, as well as improved plant availability due to preventive maintenance based on the available diagnostic information.

Softing, as a long-term partner of Schneider Electric, offers a large portfolio to enable interconnection of various protocols.
